Don Jr, Kellyanne Conway Gloat Over Report on NY AG Schneiderman’s Alleged Physical Abuse: ‘Gotcha’


In the wake of the bombshell New Yorker report in which four women accused New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman of horrific violent abuse, some of President Donald Trump’s most vocal online supporters took to Twitter for a victory lap.

Kellyanne Conway, the White House counselor, invited her followers to read Ronan Farrow and Jane Meyer’s report for the New Yorker, calling the allegations “harrowing.” Conway has repeatedly dismissed the accusers of her boss, President Trump.

Donald Trump Jr., the president’s most trollish adult son, gleefully reveled in the news that his father’s old foe abused women.

After tweeting out the New Yorker report, Don Jr. also resurfaced a number of old tweets from Schneiderman.

To really bring it home, Don Jr. cited a tweet in which Schneiderman lauded the #MeToo reporting of the New Yorker and The New York Times, commenting “Self awareness level: 0”:

Don Jr. did not take the opportunity to reckon with multiple allegations of his own father’s abuse, instead opting to keep the tasteless jokes going all night long:
